Give Mom a real treat this Mother's Day. Ride with a ranger on our 30-foot pontoon boat and learn the history of how the lake was created and the origin of the state park. Keep a lookout for an abundance of wildlife which makes Smith Mountain Lake its home. Watch to see the ospreys that have returned to the lake from their winter home in the Caribbean. We will make stops along the way to take in the scenery and for photo opportunities. Life vests will be provided by the park and must be worn at all times. Water and sunscreen are recommended.
You must be present for the safety briefing 15 minutes before the start time in order to board the vessel. Space is limited: pre-registration is required at the Main Office/Visitor Center. Registration for this event opens 5/6/2018 and closes at 4pm on 5/11/2018. Unfortunately, we cannot take pets aboard the boat. Event is free. Regular parking fees apply. For more information, please call our Main Office at (540) 297-6066 between 8am and 4:30pm.
